Recipe Post 2022 - Easter Treat - Cherry Bakewell Cupcakes

Bueños días, todo el mundo!

This week's sweet treat is inspired by the cherry Bakewell tarts from Mr Kipling,with a twist.  This is a simple recipe so is fireproof and does not require a load of unknown ingredients. For this recipe you'll need: 

  • 150g/5½oz margarine
  • 150g/5½oz caster sugar
  • 100g/3½oz self-raising flour
  • 3 free-range eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 60g/2¼oz ground almonds
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 90g/3¼oz raspberry jam
  • For the icing
  • 250g/9oz icing sugar
  • 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 12 un-dyed glacé cherrie
  • 90g/3¼oz raspberry jam


To complete this nice and simple Easter treat:
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cases.

  2. For the cupcakes, cream the margarine in a bowl until light and fluffy. Add the remaining ingredients, except the raspberry jam, and mix until well combined.

  3. Spoon the mixture into the cases and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until risen and golden-brown and a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool for 10 minutes.

  4. For the icing, mix the icing sugar and lemon juice together in a bowl until smooth.

  5. Using an apple corer, carefully remove the middle of the cupcakes. Fill the holes with the raspberry jam.

  6. Carefully spoon the icing onto the top of each cake until the icing reaches the sides of the cake case and top with a cherry.
